"Offshore Stack" by Carol Thompson
"An island glistens in the last rays of
the sun, as waves smash and ebb over rocks and wet sand. Colors dance upon
each new wave that curls around an 'offshore stack'. The setting sun will
quickly mark the end of a wonderful experience at the shore."
Artist comment: "Red sun at night, Sailors delight", is the old rhyme I learned as
a child. You may have heard it as "travellers" delight, but the meaning
is clear. When you see a red sunset, you can be assured that the
next day will be quite lovely. There are not a lot of colorful sunsets
on the Pacific Northwest coast of Washington State, so when one does occur,
the world seems to stand by in breathless admiration. My family and
I vacationed at James Island on the Olympic Peininsula, shown in this small
oil on stretched canvas. The day was memorable, and the sunset unbelievable.
Though painted from memory, this is a true representation of the scene
from the sketches and color notes I made on the spot. Using a palette
knife to render the island, helped to show the rough edges of this volcanic
offshore stack rock, and to be able to depict the subtle reflections on
the sunlit edge of it."
